Harvard Study Finds Fluoride Lowers IQ – Published in Federal Gov’t Journal | Reuters

NEW YORK, July 24, 2012

NEW YORK, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Harvard University researchers’ review of fluoride/brain studies concludes “our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children’s neurodevelopment.” It was published online July 20 in Environmental Health Perspectives, a US National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences‘ journal (1), reports the NYS Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF)

“The children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas,” write Choi et al.

Further, the EPA says fluoride is a chemical “with substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.”

Fluoride (fluosilicic acid) is added to US water supplies at approximately 1 part per million attempting to reduce tooth decay.

Water was the only fluoride source in the studies reviewed and was based on high water fluoride levels. However, they point out research by Ding (2011) suggested that low water fluoride levels had significant negative associations with children’s intelligence.

Choi et al. write, “Although fluoride may cause neurotoxicity in animal models and acute fluoride poisoning causes neurotoxicity in adults, very little is known of its effects on children’s neurodevelopment. They recommend more brain/fluoride research on children and at individual-level doses.

“It’s senseless to keep subjecting our children to this ongoing fluoridation experiment to satisfy the political agenda of special-interest groups,” says attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President.  “Even if fluoridation reduced cavities, is tooth health more important than brain health? It’s time to put politics aside and stop artificial fluoridation everywhere,” says Beeber.

After reviewing fluoride toxicological data, the NRC reported in 2006, “It’s apparent that fluorides have the ability to interfere with the functions of the brain.”

Choi’s team writes, “Fluoride readily crosses the placenta. Fluoride exposure to the developing brain, which is much more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants than is the mature brain, may possibly lead to damage of a permanent nature.”

Leading Cause of Unnatural Human Death in 20th Century is Democide – You Have No Right To Health or Government & Police Protection

18 Jun

WAKE UP!
NOW IS THE TIME. THE TIME IS NOW. RESIST.

From 1900 to 2000, the leading cause of non-natrual death in humans was democide, the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.  Government has taken 662 million lives in just 100 years, not including those killed in active combat.  It is estimated that government has killed more than six times the number of people killed in all battles combined.

If all 262 million bodies were laid head to toe, with the average height being 5 feet, they would circle the earth ten times.  It’s as if there was a nuclear war, but the casualties were spread over the period of a century. (from www.hawaii.edu)

Many Americans have found themselves  fighting the government to be able to produce, sell, and eat the type of food they desire.  How can the government decide what type of food we sell, produce, and eat in a “free” country, especially if the food is making us healthier?  How can the government arrest people over unpasteurized milk? How free would you feel if you were told you have no right to being healthy, and  no right to allow your children to eat and drink the foods you feel are best for them?

John Stossel’s Illegal Everything   *~*MUST SEE*~*

Lemonade stands, raw milk, fast food, and recording police are things that could earn you not just fines, but also a place in jail.  The bitter irony rings in my head as I remember asking my mother at a very young age, “If drugs are illegal, why do they allow people to eat McDonald’s food?” Of course I was no more than eight years old and was only trying to keep others safe. On a field trip to the museum, we were shown over-sized models of clogged arteries, with french fries and hamburgers named as the culprit. At school, they told us drugs were bad. They also told us fast food was bad. I always knew I was a prophet…or was I just a child bending to engineered consent 20 years in advance?

In a dismissal letter dated April 26, 2010 from The United States District Court For The Northern District of Iowa Western Division concerning the right to purchase and consume unpasteurized milk, the court stated:

Plaintiffs’ assertion of afundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families” is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish. In addition, courts have consistently refused to extrapolate a generalized right to “bodily and physical health” from the Supreme Court’s narrow substantive due process precedents regarding abortion, intimate relations, and the refusal of lifesaving medical treatment. See Glucksberg, 521 U.S. at 721 (warning that the fact “[t]hat many of the rights and liberties protected by the Due Process Clause sound in personal autonomy does not warrant the sweeping conclusion that any and all important, intimate, and personal decisions are so protected); see also Cowan v. United States, 5 F. Supp. 2d 1235, 1242 (N.D. Okla. 1998) (rejecting a claim that the plaintiff had the fundamental “right to take whatever treatment he wishes due to his terminal condition regardless of whether the FDA approves the treatment”). Finally, even if such a right did exist, it would not render
FDA’s regulations unconstitutional because prohibiting the interstate sale and distribution of unpasteurized milk promotes “bodily and physical health.”

I may be reading this wrong, but did the court rule that, if the right existed, prohibiting the sale and distribution of raw milk wouldn’t  be unconstitutional because the FDA’s regulations restricting food choice are to keep us safe and promote “bodily and physical health”?

Why Learn about Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR)?  (link from FDA.gov)

Imagine there is a huge food producer that makes a multitude of  products consumed by millions of Americans each year.  Now imagine that the food producer knows their products kill 100,000 people and cause over 2 million serious adverse health effects every year, yet they do not stop producing or selling them.  Would the American people allow those products to stay on the market?  Would we hold the food producer accountable and insist on charges of involuntary manslaughter if the statistics are known facts found on the FDA website? (see below)

  • Over 2 MILLION serious Adverse Drugs Reaction (ADRs) yearly
  • 100,000 DEATHS yearly
  • ADRs 4th leading cause of death ahead of pulmonary disease, diabetes, AIDS, pneumonia, accidents and automobile deaths
  • Ambulatory patients ADR rate—unknown
  • Nursing home patients ADR rate— 350,000 yearly

Is Your Choice Of Food A Fundamental Right? | Food Renegade.

HightowerLowdown.com

This is a wonderful article that really resonated with me.  The underlined parts are lines that truly sung to my innate, undying need to be free.  It brings on a sort of nostalgia, remembering American History and school plays about the Founding Fathers and Betsey Ross.  I can still hear all the songs we so proudly and cheerfully sang in music class, praising this once great nation:  “Our Country ‘Tis Of Thee,” “You’re a Grand Old Flag,” “America the Beautiful,” “I’m Proud to Be An American,” “This Land is Your Land,” and of course “The Star Spangled Banner.”  I don’t know what else to say except that my heart has sunk into the pit of my stomach.

“You grow a garden; you expect to be able to harvest the food from that garden and eat it. You raise a cow; you expect to be able to milk that cow and consume the milk. You raise chickens; you expect to gather eggs and eat them. It’s uncomplicated, simple, a fundamental right. Perhaps you wouldn’t feel this way if you lived under some other form of government, but here, now, in America and other democratized countries, this is what you expect.

According to Wisconsin Judge Patrick J. Fiedler, you do not have a fundamental right to consume the food you grow or own or raise. The Farm To Consumer Legal Defense Fund, the pioneers in defending food sovereignty and freedom, recently argued before Judge Fiedler that you and I have a constitutional right to consume the foods of our choice. Judge Fiedler saw no merit to the argument and ruled against the FTCLDF. When they asked him to clarify his statement, these were his words:

“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;”

“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;”

“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice…”
